● General: Strange but interesting ideas will be bursting from your brain early today, but good luck getting any of them to become reality now. You are likely to deal with some unexpected eruptions from other people, which will definitely distract you. So don't have expectations that are too high, today. You need to slow down anyway -- you've been going too fast for too long and it's time to let other people take the lead. You might have the idea, but they have the energy and the resources necessary.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: Criticize if you must, but for best results, put it in the gentlest possible terms. Honesty is always the best policy, but a little tact comes in handy too, especially when dealing with a hypersensitive boss.
● Finances: There's not much chance you'll be thinking about anything but your family today, but on the off-chance, you're obsessing over your career, be sure to put that nervous energy to good use. Stay grounded and harness it for a productive day.
● Love: Use that same drive for success you have at work in your love life. Make a list of possible goals, as well as a dream list of things you want from your next relationship. Picture your ideal romantic situation and work towards that path clearer.
● General: Today is a very good day to look into your future and try to identify possible pitfalls in your latest endeavor. Troubleshooting before the trouble begins is a smart habit to cultivate, so get started! It's not that you are thinking negatively about your project, it's just that you like to be prepared! Having an alternate plan (or two) will not only put your mind at ease, it will keep you at the head of the pack. So use your imagination to figure out what might go wrong.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: Better to put off major financial decisions until you have a little more certainty, and make sure you're thinking about the long-term payback. That raise may not come through as soon (or as generously) as you think.
● Finances: A superficial understanding of your problems won't help you. You need to get under the surface to find the root issues involved. Money worries are caused by your behavior, for instance, not the money itself.
● Love: Today would be a perfect time to take a personal day just for you. Your current schedule is running you ragged, and it's starting to show. Indulge in a beauty makeover, or just spend the day walking in the park. Others will notice the refreshed you.
● General: One of your newer friendships will hit a snag today, when a misunderstanding causes a confused conversation that could result in hurt feelings. But have no fear -- it's hiccups like this that tend to strengthen a relationship, not break it apart. So take things as they come, and if you or the other person gets ticked off, talk about it! Not only will you get resolution quickly, but you might actually be laughing about it by the end of the day. You can't fear conflict right now.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: Be ready to compromise: give a little and you'll get a lot in return. You know exactly how you want things to work, but unfortunately, you're not the only one at the negotiating table. Make room for the concerns of others.
● Finances: Things are as confusing as ever. But if you wait for them to clear up, you'll be waiting until the cows come home. Sometimes you just have to go ahead and give it a try to find out what happens. Today is one of those days.
● Love: Not all compliments coming from a cute co-worker are completely innocent. There may be a hidden agenda behind this flirtation. Watch out for out-of-the-ordinary requests or time-consuming favors.
● General: If you are looking to expand a personal relationship or a business partnership, today might not be the best day for it. Instead, focus on creating a balance between your personal life and your professional life. One of them has been taking over the other, and things will start to fall apart soon unless you adjust your priorities. If you have been calling in sick when you're not really sick, stop. And if you have forgotten your best friend's name, call them immediately and make some plans.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: You'll do better work on the clock if you relax when you're off the clock, so keep a little perspective and don't take your work home with you. You aren't what you do, but sometimes it's easy to forget that.
● Finances: When it comes to money, you're rather like the little girl with the little red curl: You're either doing extremely well or you're horrid. Dumping your feast or famine mentality will go a long way toward achieving some kind of financial balance in your life. Work on your attitude.
● Love: Your talent for turning a difficult situation into a blessing comes in handy today. Your positive outlook not only inspires coworkers but catches the eye of that hottie you've been meaning to chat up. Now's your chance!
● General: Open your life to renewed relationships, today. Let go of the past and give a second chance to a person you've been on the outs with lately. Put yourself in their place, listen to what they say and give them the benefit of the doubt. They have needs, and you should try to help them with them. Your generosity and compassion will not go unnoticed, and it will ensure that the two of you get things started on the right foot. A rewarding journey is sure to follow.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: To be honest, the interoffice gossip is starting to seem downright petty and mean, and you want no part of it anymore. You have every right to ask to be kept out of the loop -- you'll be considered the most trustworthy one around.
● Finances: You know enough to keep mum about money. But when it comes to accomplishments outside the financial arena, you can be as boring as the next person. No one wants to hear how well your exercise routine or diet is going. Keep the satisfaction to yourself.
● Love: A friend needs your help with a very serious issue. Listen first then act. Get more help from the professionals if you feel uncomfortable tackling an issue this important alone.
● General: Today, it's time to hop off the career ladder and stop working so hard to move yourself upward! Ambition is a powerful and positive force, but it has been taking too much control over your life lately. You need to mix things up and remember what it's like to have some good, clean fun. Get back in touch with one of your wackiest friends and schedule a night out soon. You need someone in your life right now who can get your mind off of work when you're not at work!
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: Whatever you do, don't let the current apprehension fester. The tension between you and a rival is palpable, so find a way to cut through it. Whatever the issue is between you, the best route is to get it out in the open.
● Finances: The desire to criticize those around you is stronger than ever. Take all that critical energy and turn it into something creative or risk alienating all those around you. Put the same vigor into your task as you do in turning the numbers from red to black.
● Love: Dating might seem like more work than it's worth right now. But don't forget about the positive aspects of being with someone special. Romance is the best part of any courtship.
● General: You'll be immensely entertained today when a voice of authority in your life reveals that they don't know everything after all! In fact, in one particular area, you will be the expert while they will be the novice. Try not to lord this over them or make them feel silly -- after all, you want them on your side! Show them how knowledgeable you are, and thus how valuable you are to them! This is your chance to prove your worth in a big way. Things could start changing soon.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: Everyone wants to know your communication secrets. Will you give it to them? Consider it a possibility! You lead through subtle example rather than direct instruction, and your colleagues appreciate your humble nature.
● Finances: You're a sentimental old thing today and that's not without its downside. Let yourself think about past financial triumphs but be prepared to put some limits on it. When you feel weird, you'll know you've moved beyond that good place.
● Love: A very weird vibe seems to have hijacked your day. Instead of throwing up your hands out of frustration, go with the flow. The bizarre qualities of your day will make for an interesting story to tell later.
● General: It's perfectly acceptable to rely on your network of friends and associates to connect you with the career opportunities you seek. But they will only send you down the same paths you've already been on -- isn't it time to try something new for a while? Don't be hesitant to go down a road that is unknown to you. If you want a change, why not make it a big change? If you are having the urge, that means you are ready for a major transition. Go explore something that excites you.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: If only every day could be this effortless! You're so absorbed in a project, you hardly notice the time go by. The hours pass in a blur of creative activity and steady progress. When everything clicks, it seems magical.
● Finances: You may be financially successful but you have the cardinal rules to thank for getting there. Don't start thinking you're above the basics. Common courtesy and respect are still absolute necessities; don't try to buy them off with money.
● Love: Self-control is your biggest issue today. Instead of giving into every craving, allow yourself a few treats and then move on. If you indulge too much, the items you love will no longer be special.
● General: Just about anything you suggest, no matter how outlandish or odd it might seem, will be heartily received today -- you have an original mind, and people are loving what it's coming up with! This puts you in an ideal position to lead your coworkers or your friends today. Just don't put too much pressure on yourself to come up with every single idea or option.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: Intervene only to correct mistakes today, but don't provide input just for the sake of providing input. You can't be the leader every time -- let someone else enjoy the spotlight for once and be happy for them meanwhile.
● Finances: You've saved so much money you'll want to pinch yourself to make sure you're not dreaming. At least you finally see the results of all those homemade lunches and skipped sales. Even though you've reached your quota, stay all fired up to keep on penny-pinching.
● Love: Stop beating around the bush! Today you need to be more direct with a crush on how you feel. No need for dramatic proclamations. But this person may not have a clue about your true emotions surrounding the friendship. Take a risk to see what happens next.
● General: Are you ready to make a big impact on someone else's life, today? Good -- all you need to do is open your heart and be there for that person when they need you. It won't take much -- a sweet smile, an extra handkerchief, a sympathetic shoulder to cry on. But the littlest gestures you make will create a positive outcome in the life of someone who could use a friend. And you don't have to come up with words of encouragement, either. Listening is all you need to do.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: Take one small step at a time and pretty soon, you'll know exactly where you're going. A project may seem daunting, but there's no reason to quit so soon. The end game will become apparent as you take care of the details.
● Finances: It's not money that will do you in, it's how quickly you use it. Stamina is everything, so pace yourself. You can outspend your budget in no time flat if you don't keep yourself on a short leash.
● Love: Instant gratification won't come to you today. Love isn't a fast food restaurant. Real relationships take time to establish themselves, grow and evolve. Rushing the process could ruin your chances at happiness.
● General: Today, it's time to take a larger view of your life and how your recent actions might have affected your path. You took a turn down a new road -- was it the right decision? Think about it and figure it out before you continue going any further. You need to be more reflective about your actions, and add some more discipline into your life. Hold yourself back from falling into temptations. Doing so will prepare you for something big that's coming soon.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: Use people according to their abilities and be prepared to fill in the gaps. No, you don't exactly have the dream team at your disposal right now, but it's all you have. Make the best of an imperfect situation and keep a positive attitude.
● Finances: You're tired. Luckily for you, you have the day to do something about that. Lounging and napping are just what the doctor ordered. You'll have that much more energy to tackle the coming week.
● Love: Spontaneity can be a good thing and sometimes it can drive you nuts. Living by the seat of your pants is thrilling and fun at times, but not twenty-four hours a day. Set up a regular routine to put some order in your frantic lifestyle.
● General: Whether you want to expand your social circle or your career network, you have friends in high places who can help make the connections you need! They won't think you are using them if you call them up and ask them to make an introduction or two for you. In fact, they will love the opportunity to help you meet your goals! Just put yourself in their shoes -- wouldn't it give you a thrill if you knew you had the power to make someone you care about happy?
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: Keep your eyes peeled: sometimes opportunity arises in the most unlikely places. If you're looking for a new job or challenge, luck will be on your side today. So stay flexible and consider possibilities that seem implausible at first glance.
● Finances: It's hard to function without some leadership but no one is stepping up to the plate. Stop looking around for a likely candidate. You may be just the one to help out those around you by assuming the role. Relax, it suits you.
● Love: Friends might ask your advice on everything from romance to finance. Feel free to give them all your savvy suggestions but don't get carried away. Just because people look to you for guidance doesn't make you their guardian angel.
